A new era?

There is no doubt that the apparent new found confidence of Senate to stand against what they consider to be unjustified proposals from the VC is a direct result of UCU’s campaign against a perceived weakness in our governance mechanisms.

Our silent protests outside Senate and Council, coupled with our vote of no confidence will surely have influenced Senates refusal to endorse an ill thought out merger proposal.

Hopefully this signals the end of the ‘cosy chat’ culture that has pervaded our governance, and the start of a new era of robust challenge that ensures sufficient checks and balances are in place to curb the excesses of maverick leaders.
